Gullie, Osprey, and Ric are all lost and find their way to the beach and each other. With the help of lunar eclipse water, these lost souls create their own mythology as they seek home and navigate time at the mouth of the San Diego River.

PENUMBRA was commissioned by The Old Globe Theatre in 2022 and workshopped in 2023.

Each performance will be followed by a talkback with the artists and playwright.

Content Disclosure: The show explores themes of adoption, stepparents, alcoholism, cancer, and homelessness.
